Thermometer at home did not even make it to 80F today, which was supposed to be the warmest day of this stretch.  Ahh, September near the Lakes, also had several rounds of boomers.

Monday night/Tuesday morning I was driving in to work (3:00 AM start, lived in an apartment a block away from my work until the end of August but am staying with my gf at her current place across town until our new lease starts on the 14th) in a torrential downpour most of the way. Saw the lights of a utility truck in the distance as I turned onto the street. As I got closer I saw that it was half blocking our employee driveway. A big tree had come down taking out some power lines. We were on generator power and my old apartment building was blacked out.

More storms this morning, sun's out now with a blue box in effect for an expected later round. So far September feels stormier than May and June in this neck of the woods!

89'd at ORD today.

Hit 91 at MDW and 90 here.

Other local sites in the vicinity also hit 90/91...so ORD lagged just a bit.

Nice light show to the north of me. Around buffalo grove area based on radar. Some nice horizontal streaks showing definition and height of the storm. Flaring every few seconds. 

Also just saw the area was under a tornado warning under an hr ago for lake and north central cook counties.

Seems the NWS is having some network issues, so I have no idea what KIND made it up to today. But even if it as a tick cooler than yesterday, it felt a lot more uncomfortable in the humidity department.

95 yesterday/92 today at CVG.  95 is the hottest of the summer.   Lexington airport climbed up to 100 yesterday...pretty surprising, as that is typically not a hot spot.

Liking garden variety odds over next couple days 

Could be more than garden variety. But seriously, I don't know what happened and I don't care, but don't be such a stranger.

Unusual looking drought monitor map. Small areas of moderate drought surrounded by nothing. Usually, abnormal dryness / drought is more widespread. I do know that drought will expand down here in the lower OV with the ongoing extreme late summer heat wave under the ridge of death. No measurable rain in two weeks now.

All week, models had been advertising a nice line of storms pushing through Iowa today, but they pretty much skipped by Cedar Rapids.  I picked up a tenth or so.  Dubuque took the brunt last night and again tonight.

This is the time of year for a splotchy looking map.  Convection can cause big differences over short distances.

That map illustrates what has been going on here for a while... a quarter inch here, a quarter inch there, but big individual rains have been avoiding.

Pretty windy out there today.

Looking ahead, it appears there are a lot of average to warmer than average days yet to come this month.  Fine by me.

True, but at the same time, at least down here in the lower OV, dryness / drought is usually more widespread (not as splotchy). It's desperately dry out there, and the record breaking upper 90's heat everyday isn't helping. Next week looks like more of the same. Shades of the horrific 1999 drought are starting to dance in my head.

Was a pretty noisy late night/early morning with lots of thunderstorms passing through the area.  Picked up 0.81".  The yard is lush green, and rapidly growing like it did back in May/June.  A far cry from the state it was in most of July and early August.

Funny enough, my gauge also shows .81” this morning. Back to mowing 3 times a week
